The event

Palazzo Grassi presents a new cycle of ateliers dedicated to girls and boys aged 7 to 11. The first guest to lead the little participants to discover the languages ​​of contemporary art is Driant Zeneli with "Once upon a time ... the Mose and the Medusa". Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 October 2021 the first appointment of Atelier des Enfants: a new format that, through thematic ateliers, favors the direct relationship with artists and their practices, placing them in relation with pedagogy. The first tutor artist who will guide the participants in the discovery of contemporary art through unpublished paths is Driant Zeneli (1983, Shkoder, Albania) with "Once upon a time ... the Mose and the Medusa", an atelier dedicated to the relationship between nature and robotics inspired by Venice. In the project, the artist invites children to imagine possible worlds by drawing and building robotic jellyfish capable of cleaning the Mose, presented on this occasion as a large sea monster. To better develop the playful and mechanical component, the atelier makes use of the expertise offered by a team of young Genoese researchers inventors of Hydrocarbot, a robot that cleans the sea of ​​hydrocarbons by collecting and recycling them. In this way, the atelier develops a synergy between institutions and deepens the relationship between art and science as common languages ​​of the generations of the future. Starting from the direct dialogue with some of the authors of the volume dedicated to this complex modern architecture of the city entitled “Mose Effect. The challenges of a project for the future "published by Marsilio Editori (2021), the artist has drawn documents, photographs, videos on which children will work by examining the theme of interactions between man and machine.

The atelier is open to children aged 7 to 11. Participation in both meetings is required.

Cost € 20 each / € 15 each for siblings.
